I'm not sure that I get it. What is happening? What is the time period? Where is the setting?

I disagree. I can't consider a good piece of art if I don't even know what happening in it.

Then look it up. The girl in the center is dancing and everyone else is watching her, the colors and the emotions are beautiful

Salome was a biblical figure, a princess most famous for dancing and advocating for the execution of John the Baptist during the Feast of Herod. She is generally seen as a dangerously seductive figure by Christians. The scene is the famous dance, where her mother beseeches her to ask her step-father (Herod) to execute John because he questioned the legitimacy of their marriage.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it. Time in its deeps swims like a monstrous whale; and, like a whale, feeds on the littlest things -- small tunes and little unskilled songs of the olden, golden evenings -- and anon turneth whale-like to overthrow whole ships."
- Lord Dunsany -

"We enjoy, we see nothing by direct vision; but only by reflection, and in anatomical dismemberment."
- Thomas Carlyle -
