Ab initio calculations

Why are quantum mechanical calculations so computationally expensive? What exactly is the process that makes it so time taking?

What I mean is, one can perform classical dynamics simulations on a large system like proteins with no difficulty, unlike ab initio calculations. Why? What type of calculations are to be performed in ab initio that makes it expensive? Matrix diagonalization?
