The OPERA neutrino experiment was designed to perform a unique appearance measurement in the CNGS beam to confirm the oscillation mechanism in the atmospheric sector. Runs were successfully carried out from 2008 to 2012. The status of the analysis is reported and the topology and the kinematics of the first two ντ CC candidate events are described. A first result of the νμ → νe oscillation search is also presented.
