The event, scheduled for October at the Italian capital's Teatro Palladium, is to feature the oratorio Quo Vadis by the Polish composer Feliks Nowowiejski.

The orchestra and choir from Białystok will be conducted by Italian conductor Massimiliano Caldi, who has worked in Poland for many years, and the solo parts will be sung by Polish singers Wioletta Chodowicz, Robert Gierlach and Wojciech Gierlach.

Premiered in 1907, Nowowiejski’s oratorio had more than 200 performances before World War II, throughout Europe and in North and South America.

It is based on the novel Quo Vadis by the Polish Nobel Prize-winning writer Henryk Sienkiewicz, which is set in Rome in the first century and tells of the love between a young Christian woman and a Roman patrician.

In 2018, a CD featuring the Quo Vadis oratorio, recorded for the German label cpo by the Poznań Philharmonic, the Chorus of the Podlasie Philharmonic and the same soloists conducted by Łukasz Borowicz, received the International Classical Music Award.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the death of Feliks Nowowiejski.
