OPERA first events from the CNGS neutrino beam

Abstract : The aim of the OPERA experiment is to search for the appearance of the tau neutrino in the quasi pure muon neutrino beam produced at CERN (CNGS). The detector, installed in the Gran Sasso underground laboratory 730 km away from CERN, consists of a lead/emulsion target complemented with electronic detectors. A report is given on the detector status (construction, data taking and analysis) and on the first successful 2006 neutrino runs.
