    Beamer already loads xcolor. There is a special beamer class option to pass on options for xcolor, you'll need to look it up in the beamer manual.

    Try \PassOptionsToPackage{dvipsnames}{xcolor} before the \documentclass... (Not sure if it'll work)

    @Sebastino the op might be on an older version of beamer.

    tex.stackexchange.com/questions/74805/… it is marked as a duplicate, but the answers are better there than in the duplicate IMHO
