How to apply opacity without affecting the child elements of HTML / CSS?

I want to achieve this using html and css:

schema

I have tried to set the opacity of the container to 0.3 and the box to 1, but it doesn't work: both divs have 0.3 opacity.

jsFiddle of my try here

The effect I am trying to achive is a popup box that comes on top of the page. It is highlighted by fading the content below (by lowering the opacity).
