Scenaria was a glossy, informative monthly journal (incorporating Arabesque), devoted to the performing arts.

It was founded in 1977 by Julius Eichbaum, and edited and published by him through his publishing house Triad Publishers and also by ''Seven Arts Publishers (Pty) Ltd'' who were located in Parkview, Johannesburg.

Originally sub-titled "a magazine for the performing arts in the Transvaal", it later dropped the subtitle and became known nationally simply as Scenaria.

It published sharp and provocative editorials and articles on the state of arts and culture in South Africa. Ostensibly intended to serve all art forms, it gradually began to display a distinct preference for Eichbaum’s real passion: opera. For this reason too Eichbaum and the journal were at the forefront of all efforts to save the so-called “universal arts” (elite arts) in the face of the pressures towards Africanization in the 1990s.

The journal was discontinued with the passing away of Eichbaum in 1998.
