By default opera opens new tabs empty. Can I configure it so that upon opening a new tab the homepage is automatically loaded?

Actually, by default, Opera tabs come with the Speed Dial, if I remember well (or this is to activate, maybe). – Gnoupi Aug 31 '09 at 9:00

First, set your Home page, which can be done via:

Tools > Preferences > General

Or Ctrl + F12 and then to the General tab.

Next, set all your bookmarks to open up in new tabs.

Now, call home with the home shortcut Alt + Home.

This will fire up a new tab set to your home page and skip showing the Speed Dial/blank tab.

Neat trick. Upside-down solution, I haven't thought of that. – Tadeusz A. Kadłubowski Aug 31 '09 at 8:58
If you were in space, it'd be right-side up. – random Aug 31 '09 at 9:00

Kadłubowski & Rads: Yes, you can tell Opera to open a new tab with your home page instead of the speeddial. Short summary; You can modify the keyboard shortcut and mouse gesture to do exactly what you want.
