Natya Sangeet (नाट्यसंगीत) is a form of Indian classical and semi-classical music. The name literally means Dramatic Music and the musical dramas are then called as Sangeet Natak. It is also one of the two popular forms of vocal arts in Maharashtra and surrounding states.


Natya Sangeet is said to have originated in the 19th century in a region that is now the state of Maharashtra in India. In past music was monopoly of Princes and other rich class.common people could not enjoy classical music. It basically emerged so that the common people could also enjoy classical music as it is based on classical base.

In 1879, Playwright and producer Trilokekar independently presented his musical play Nal-Damayanti (नल-दमयंती) to Marathi public. It was the first musical play on Marathi stage. Later on Balwant Pandurang Kirloskar (or Annasaheb Kirloskar) staged his first musical play Shakuntal on October 31, 1880 which was based on Kalidas's play Abhijñānaśākuntalam.


Annasaheb Kirloskar wrote shakuntal in 1880, thereby starting a new tradition in Maharashtra. During its early period, Sangeet natak was dominated by religious plays like Sangeet Saubhdra. The trend changed with the coming of sangeet Manapman, which depicts bravery of its hero Dheryadhar and his love with Bhamini which was written by Krushnaji Prabhakar Khadilkar.


During the 1960s, another turn came with the emergence of Jitendra Abhisheki, who was credited with applying simplicity to the complex composition of Natya Sangeet.


विष्णुदास भावे यांनी मराठी रंगभूमीचा श्रीगणेशा केला तर संगीत नाटकाचा लौकिक अर्थाने प्रारंभ अण्णासाहेब किर्लोस्कर यांच्या संगीत शाकुंतल (१८८०) या नाटकाने झाला. त्यानंतर सौभद्र, रामराज्यवियोग, द्रौपदी, विद्याहरण, शारदा, स्वयंवर, मानापमान, संशयकल्लोळ, एकच प्याला ...अशा संगीत नाटकांची परंपराच निर्माण झाली. १८८० ते १९३० हा संगीत नाटकांच्या आणि पर्यायाने नाट्यसंगीताचा सर्व अर्थांनी सुवर्णकाळ होता.
