Whilst in Europe Daniel also studied in Amsterdam and sung a season with Nationale Reis Opera of the Netherlands.

He is renowned for starring as Jean Valjean in the West End production of Les Miserables (Sondheim Theatre). His other credits include: Lt Cable in the Lincoln Centre production of South Pacific (UK/Australian tours), Anatoly in Chess (UK Tour) and Tony in West Side Story (UK Tour) and Father Frank in Saturday Night Fever (International Tour).
