The master rake, Don Giovanni, gets his just rewards again in the end but not before Mozart's ravishing music flows from the Metropolitan Opera tomorrow when the new Franco Zeffirelli production is shown from 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Maryland Public Television, channels 22 and 67.

Videotaped last April, "Don Giovanni" features Samuel Ramey, bass, in the title role with James Levine conducting the 1787 opera. Also singing, in order of appearance, are bass Ferruccio Furlanetto as Leporello; soprano Carol Vaness as Donna Anna; bass Kurt Moll as Commendatore; tenor Jerry Hadley as Don Ottavio; soprano Karita Mattila as Donna Elvira; soprano Dawn Upshaw as Zerlina and bass Philip Cokorinos as Masetto.

Others performing include Daniel Beckwith, recitative accompanist; Jerry Grossman, cello continuo; Laurence Glazener, bass continuo and Joyce Rasmussen Balint, mandolin solo. F. Murray Abraham is the host.
