How exactly are you trying to export?  Your output looks like a plain
latex export (M-x org-export-dispatch RET l p), not beamer (... l P)?
Note difference in case (p versus P) and similar for export to latex
code alone (l or b) and for opening the PDF automatically (o versus O).

For beamer export, by the way, you do not need to specify the
latex_class.  For version 8.x of org, you no longer need
BEAMER_FRAME_LEVEL either.  For most of my beamer org documents, all I
have in terms of specifications is the following:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+TITLE:     The title of the talk
#+AUTHOR:    Eric S Fraga
#+LaTeX_CLASS_options: [bigger,allowframebreaks]
#+OPTIONS:   H:2 toc:nil num:nil
#+startup: beamer
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

followed by the actual content.  The startup option is to enable the
special key bindings that work on headlines for columns and blocks.

Also note that @...@ is no longer the specification for alterted
text.  Use *...* instead.  The example you have was for version 7.x of

Finally, the documentation for the new exporter, for org v8.x, is here:
The older documentation, written by me initially, is no longer
applicable but is there for those people still using org v7.x.
