And this isn't the only cultural upset Eyjafjallajokul has wrought.
The high-profile premiere of Iron Man 2 was set for next Monday in London, but has now been moved to Los Angeles, the Times reported.
And Miley Cyrus was also to appear in London at a for-charity screening of her latest movie, The Last Song, which has also been canceled. So, while New Yorkers are obviously suffering from the loss of the Mariinsky Theatre Chorus, it's really London that has been hurt most by the Icelandic volcano. Londoners: you have our sympathy!
