Not so fast; 2 seconds of googling gives you

http://www.opera.com/download/

from which you can select 'Ubuntu' in the dropdown menu.
You'll then download a .deb package, which you can install
like so (from the command line, unfortunately):

sudo dpkg -i [filename you just downloaded]

See how that works for you.
