one early such example, and maybe the earilest?, was A.Y.Vaganova's 1933 version (see below) wherein Odette, as "The Swan" if mem. serves, was danced by Ulanova and Odile by Olga Jordan.
Original title: Lebedinoe ozero.
Chor: Agrippina Vaganova after Ivanov and Petipa; mus: Petr Chaikovskii; lib: Vladimir Dmitriev after Begichev and Gel'tzer; scen & cos: Vladimir Dmitriev.
First perf: Leningrad, Kirov Theater, Apr 13, 1933, Kirov Ballet (Company)

prior to this prod. in Leningrad, Ulanova danced Odette/Odile in a 1929 Petipa/ivanov staging, and again in 35, in Moscow, she danced the dual role in Gorsky staging.
there are definitely photos of Ulanova as Odile.
