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.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
- Hilaire Belloc -
