If you would rather continue using Opera 9.27, you can
get archived flashplayers here:
Use the 9r48 version. I have found the easiest way to
do this is to ceate a ~/plugins folder and put
flashplayer there for Opera. Opera will usually find
it, but you will want to remove the pluginpath for the
newer version from Operas pluginpaths.
I am personally using Opera 9.50b2, and find it quite
acceptably stable, and latest flashplayer works ok
