Whilst as RNCM, Daniella’s roles included Despina (Cosi fan Tutte), Lady Ellington (La Vie Parisienne), La Fée (Cendrillon) and Gretel (Hansel & Gretel).
Before moving to the UK, Daniella trained at The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, receiving a Bachelor of Music and Post-Graduate Diploma in Classical Voice under the tutelage of Patricia Price.

Daniella has a passion for event planning and in 2014, collaborated with fellow colleague Madeleine Joyce (mezzo-soprano) to plan a fully self devised recital at the West Australian Government House Ballroom. They followed the evening with a second concert in 2015 at one of Perth’s most iconic buildings, the Forrest Chase GPO, joined by associate artist Lochlan Brown (piano) which raised funds for their first year studying abroad.

She was most recently awarded second prize at the Bampton Opera Young Singers Competition.
