Roald Dahl’s deliciously dark tale of young Charlie Bucket and the mysterious confectioner Willy Wonka comes to life in a brand new West End musical directed by Academy Award® winner Sam Mendes.

dark tale 是什么意思?
Jiang Xia
China
黑色故事, 或 黑色童话
Explanation:
Dark tale一词指的是黑色故事或黑色童话,内容大多包含黑色幽默、古怪的情节和可怕的暴力。这一词在这个句子中有双关的含意,因为Roald Dahl的<<查理的巧克力工厂>>(Charlie’s Chocolate Factory)一书是以巧克力为主轴的儿童故事。这边用 “deliciously dark tale”很传神地表达出好吃的巧克力与诡谲的故事情节的组合。
