  Quo Vadis Op.30, is a 1909 German-language oratorio by the Polish composer Feliks Nowowiejski drawn from the novel Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz.
Written during the composer's studies with Max Bruch and Ernst Eduard Taubert in Berlin, it was premiered successfully in Amsterdam at the Concertgebouw in 1909, from where the work's reputation grew so that it was performed in more than 150 cities in Europe, and North and South America. It was performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, conducted by Nowowiejski himself, becoming the first Polish conductor to conduct in the hall's history.
In total it was performed over 200 times up until the outbreak of World War II in 1939. The Polish musicologist Wlodzimierz Poźniak wrote in 1960 that Nowowiejski's "Quo vadis" is the work which, from the entire Polish musical literature after Chopin, achieved the greatest international success.Sukces „Quo Vadis” w Berlinie - rok Feliksa Nowowiejskiego i Henryka Sienkiewicza However the work was not performed outside Poland after the Second World War until a revival in Poznan and Berlin in June 2016 by the Poznan Philharmonic conducted by Łukasz Borowicz.
